See how much you can transfer over and then see if the problems still occur.

However it isn't always easy to put a second drive in some computers. What make and model is your machine or motherboard?

I've been told by Gateway I could add additional harddrive but right now $100 is impossible. So trying to find a temporary fix. I have already moved several of my files over to the D drive, made no impact on my C drive at all.

Try this for a quick fix :
I am assuming here that you have at least a few GB of free space left on the D drive.
1. Click on Start->Settings->control panel->system, then click on the performance tab. Click the Virtual memory button. Select the 'let me specify my own virtual memory settings' option, then in the drop down box labelled 'Hard Disk', select the D drive. Click OK out of everything & reboot.
This will move your swap file to the D drive, which should not only free up a lot of space on the C drive but also make the system run better.
Remember, if you notice a file called win386.swp appear on the D drive, do NOT try & delete it! If you don't see this file, it will be because it's invisible.
2. After the reboot, go to Start->settings->control panel->Internet options. In the section marked Temporary Internet files, click on the 'Delete Files' button. When this is done, click on the 'settings' button in that same section. Click on the 'Move folder' button & select the D drive from the pop up list.
Click OK to everything & reboot.
3. Next, open My computer or Windows Explorer & go into the C drive. Open the Windows folder & locate the TEMP directory & open it. Select all the files in that temp folder & delete. Close My computer & empty the recycle bin.
4. The last thing I recommend you do, is defrag the C drive. This should be in Start->Programs->Accessories->System tools->disk defragmenter.
